RWB’s First-Ever Porsche 911 Turbo Is Mad, Bad And For Sale At $200k+

It’s a rough world in the tuning industry, but you’ve got to start somewhere. Akira Nakai embarked on his adventure with this exact model: the #1 in Mignonette Green.

Nakai-san’s tuned Porsches are exactly the opposite of the new, modern, factory-stock ones: they’re loud, wide and totally OTT.

It might not sit well with purists, especially as making one requires the butchering of a naturally-aspirated, air-cooled 911, but the RWBs are exclusive machines manufactured by hand, and Nakai-san’s level of craftsmanship is extraordinary.

Don’t get fooled by its looks, though, because it’s a 1990 964-gen 911, crafted to look like the iconic 930. Apart from the humongous wheel-arches, there’s a rather hefty ducktail spoiler that houses the massive intercooler for the custom-made turbocharged, 3.6-litre flat-six. As you’d expect, the list of modifications it features is complex, ranging from 356 components to ground control adjustable top hats.

The car is up for sale at Hemmings for a cool $219,888.

    Meh… I’ll take a Singer. They have 10 times better craftsmanship.

    • Six Thousand Times

      That’s true but this keeps it a little more real. Singers are lovely carbonfibre and billet alloy Porsche recreations and this is closer to a modified factory model. It’s also cheaper than a Singer.

      • nastinupe

        Yes it is cheaper but not by much. Both cars are heavily modified recreations. I just personally like Singers’ take on it a bit better. There much more attention to detail, especially in the interior and engine bay.

        • Six Thousand Times

          Still two different philosophies. You’re in no way wrong to favour the Singer but all of that attention to detail can end up running your grand total up to $400 large. And that’s perhaps totally worth it as every part is a work of art. The RWB is more of a “outlaw ” racer type of thing. You’d buy it to go really fast.

    bonkers cool!

    I like the colour. I would be hesitant to put anything in or on a vehicle that says, “Takata,” at the moment. Those harnesses would need to go, and if there are airbags, those would have to be changed, too.
    Otherwise, this is a beautifully-made automobile.

    • RDS Alphard

      I have yet to heard any horror story on Takata harnesses ; and , just because Takata have defected airbags , doesn’t meant their other products are shit too .

  • Bash

    I would just run another quality/safety check on those takata belts one more time before paying the 200K+ price..

    just saying.
